Hmm, I would try to first tackle lintian/linda checks for init scripts
to be LSB compliant (or at least to contain the dependency information
in LSB format). Rationale: This gives other Debian devs as much time as
possible to fix their init scripts.

I'm mostly indifferent about the other "hotspots". But I guess these
should be part of the first 5 you are tackling:

Set up the hardware clock in the background
Set up the network in the background
Remove depmod from the boot process

Rationale: Probably not too much work, but noticable gain in
performance. Though caution is needed with background clock and network
setup. Quite a few daemons rely on the network being set up, others
might react in funny ways _if_ the clock is changed in unexpected ways
while they are running.
